Change print size just for

If you are using Internet Explorer 7 or 8 or 9, hold down the CTRL key, and press the "plus" ('+') key, to magnify the whole web-page. Use "minus" to shrink, or "zero" to reset to 100%.

Or, within IE, click "View" and "Text Size" and choose a different size.

THere is a section in the general settings folder that should be able to help you calibrate your display. If the screen does not respond to you pinching your fingers together to reduce it and doesn't respond to recallibration, I would recommend a hard reset and then if that doesn't help, connecting through i tunes and doing a restore. Remember to always back up all of your data before doing any sort of reset or restore proceedure. good luck

I am unable to see the normal size screen image, it is magnified and will not reset to normal size

This is not a problem...

You just accidentally zoomed in, to zoom back out, here's what you gotta do: double-tap anywhere on your iPhone screen using 3 of your fingers (simultaneously). That will fix it.

And in case you want to zoom in again, just do the same thing.

Monitor is enlarged, wont return to normal size

Hi, three possible things. 1) You have activated the magnifier. Go to Start, All Programs, Accessories, Accessibility, Magnifier - deactivate, should be a small window bottom left of the desktop. or 2) Your screen resolution somehow changed. Right click on any clear part of the desktop, go to properties, Settings Tab. Adjust screen resolution to desired setting then click Apply/OK. or 3)You are in Safemode. Restart and if same large icons etc, do # 2. Hope that this be of some help to you. Pls post how things turn up. Regards
